Peony Parcel || The Botanica Edition

7:00 am

It's my favourite time - Peony Parcel time! If you haven't been reading my blog for a while then you will have missed all the other Peony Parcel boxes, but you can read about them here and here.






"Me" time is something we all want more of. That half an hour, or more of time away from anyone else, to just relax and unwind from the busyness of day to day life. Peony Parcel*, a new Australian subscription box, aims to deliver you 3 to 5 full size or deluxe sample beauty, bath, lifestyle and wellness products to help you enjoy some "me" time.  It is a bi-monthly subscription which aims to help you unwind. A single box costs $59.95, but if you sign up for 6 months you get much better value, plus if you follow their Instagram they always run specials, like the 10% off offer I used when I subscribed. I had signed up for 6 months which ran out with my last box, but Peony Parcel was kind enough to send me my latest box for free (which I am oh so grateful for!). 



Now the Botanica edition is a me-time box inspired by nature, and honestly has to be one of my favourite boxes! Let's just get right into it!

The first thing I discovered in my Peony Parcel was the Onne Skin Sparkling Sponge*. I have never used a Konjac sponge before, though I've heard a number of people rave about them. Made from the vegetable fibres of the Konjac tree, this sponge is naturally rich in minerals and Vitamins A through to E, making it the perfect beauty solution for sparkling skin. You simple wet the sponge until it is soft and then massage in circles over the face to buff away dead skin. It seems really interesting and like an easy way to exfoliate (which I love!) so I can't wait to put it to the test!



Next was a mini candle from Luxe Scented Candles* in the scent 'Black Fig and Guava'. Now I really don't need more candles at the moment, but I'll never say no to another. I actually really enjoy the scent of these, it's so different to the other sweet scents I usually go with, so it'll be a refreshing change to have this burning away in my bedroom!

Being winter, my hands are soo dry, so this next inclusion was a really smart choice from the lovely people at Peony Parcel! The Enbacci Moisturising Hand and Nail Cream* is formulated to hydrate the skin and promote youthful looking hands. I am really enjoying this hand cream. It's hydrating, but doesn't leave your hands feeling super oily after you apply it, which is a must for my hand creams. Plus it smells so refreshing to use!




You know how I love my baths, so the bath inclusions are always the best part of Peony Parcel, and this box certainly didn't disappoint. Nina Bailey's Botanical Bath Soak* not only smells gorgeous but looks amazing and makes the best, most relaxing bath ever. The ingredients in the Rose bath soak include: Himalayan Pink Salt, Epsom Salt, Rose Petal Powder, Natrasorb Essential oils Rose Geranium & Lavender, Organic Rose Petals. This is definitely a winner with me, I already want to buy all the other bath soaks Nina Bailey has....



 Now of course I saved the best for last! The final inclusion in this box was a Bahen and Co Almond and Sea Salt Cacao 70% Bar*. It's safe to say that this is well and truly gone, and I absolutely loved it. Rich, but not bitter, smooth and just so good. I already want to order every single chocolate bar they sell. Plus, how gorgeous is the packaging?! Can we just appreciate that for a moment!




Anyway, it's safe to say that I am loving every single product in this box. Peony Parcel never seems to cease to impress me, their boxes just get better every time! What was your favourite product in The Botanica Edition?

  10. I hadn't heard of this box but it looks gorgeous and like the products have actually been thought out and not just crappy samples chucked in like some of the subscriptions around.
